An eSeminar is an online seminar where participants view the presentation through their web browser. A key feature is the interactive element – the ability to give, receive and discuss information. eSeminars provide CPD opportunities for secondary teachers and also act as expert ‘visitors’ to engage with GSCE/Standard Grade and A-level/Advanced Higher students. Each eSeminar is half an hour in length and held on a variety of different days and times (free of charge) for teachers and students to login.

Our eSeminars programme has recently been updated. A variety of different topics are being offered such as:

  • nutrition through life
  • diet and health
  • insight into energy and nutrients
  • digestion
  • nutrition data collection and research
  • food commodities
  • food science
  • physical activity and behavioural science


In addition, primary and secondary teacher CPD eSeminars are held to support food education. Login at work or home and test the interactive features of the eSeminars. All that is required is a computer with speakers connected to the internet.

If the time of day or date does not suit, recordings of the eSeminars are available online and presentation notes are also being made available.
